10/10

Kovar rescued us in 2017 when we had a botched roofing job done by another company. They were unbelievably helpful at that time and, late into the season, they were able to get the offending roof removed and a watertight roof installed in it's place. This time we had them back to do the roof on our shed to match. Another fantastic job by a professional, courteous and conscientious team of roofers! Site was cleaned up immaculately. Without a doubt I would recommend these guys. I would trust them to do any construction around our home - Next will be the walkway, the rebuilding of an entry way.... and the list goes on! Thanks again guys!

A huge thank you to Jason and his team for coming to our rescue! In August of this year, we experienced a disastrous installation of a metal roof by another Ottawa based roofing company. They had damaged our siding. They had installed the steel panels improperly. They left the roof unprotected overnight when there was a of 39mm rainfall, resulting in a leak into the attic and damage to the ceiling in our hallway. This unnamed company (oh how I wish we could say who it is!) was given the opportunity to fix the problems they had caused. Given what we had been through already, we were concerned about the work they were doing on their second attempt. A friend recommended contacting Kovar Contracting for help. They came to inspect our roof within 24 hours of our request and confirmed our suspicions - that we were already leaking (again) -less than a week after the 2nd metal roof was “completed”. Jason helped us navigate this complex situation so that we would have the necessary, and proper, documentation to pursue legal action against the original roofing company. The verdict was that the metal roof needed to be removed (again) and replaced– for a 3rd time in a space of 2 ½ months. After such a bad experience with the metal roof, we opted to go back to a shingle roof. When the lawyer finally gave us the OK to proceed with the metal roof removal, Jason and his team acted quickly to step in and get a secure roof over our heads before the snow arrived. Communication was excellent throughout the process. Jason was always just a phone call away. He and his team have done a fabulous job of restoring our roof, repairing the damage inflicted upon our house by the other roofing company, as well as replacing our eaves troughs at the same time. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again! Our heartfelt thanks go out to Jason, Jamie, Chuck, Brad , Kyle, Alex, Scott and Tyler for their professionalism and quality workmanship. You are an awesome bunch of guys!
